Assessments

At INPP, we offer completely drug-free and non-invasive treatments, which can help children with specific learning difficulties and adults with anxiety problems.

To find out whether you or your child could benefit from our help, we request you complete our Initial Screening Questionnaire. If the results of the questionnaire suggest further assistance is required, you will be advised to arrange an initial consultation. View more information on non-invasive assessments of children or non-invasive assessments of adults.

The initial consultation lasts for approximately one hour. A full developmental history is taken to determine whether an assessment is required. We will only recommend the INPP programme if it is appropriate for your child. The initial consultation gives you the opportunity to ask questions concerning INPP and discuss particular problems.

A full diagnostic assessment to look for signs of neuro-motor immaturity may then be suggested. Lasting two hours, extensive tests will be carried out to assess gross and fine muscle coordination, balance, patterns of motor development, the presence of aberrant reflexes, laterality, oculo-motor functioning, visual-perceptual ability and visual-motor integration performance.

A home programme of daily physical exercises is prescribed, based on the assessment findings. We have devised these movements and exercises to stimulate maturation within the nervous system.

Approximately eight weeks later, you will return for a report reading. The findings of the diagnostic assessment will be explained to you in detail and you will be provided with a copy of the report. The first follow-up review and audiometric assessment (if appropriate) will be carried out at the same visit.

Progress will be monitored at intervals of eight weeks, and the exercises adapted according to progress. On average, treatments last for approximately one year.
